Intervention

Interventions that we offer vary according to the outcome of assessment, and will be tailor-made to the requirements of individuals and families to ensure the best care and support.

We recommend a specifically tailored 3 session post-diagnostic package to parents of children with ASD which includes the following:

Session 1 : Understanding the Diagnosis

Session 2 : Understanding and Analysing Behaviour

Session 3 : Helping your child at home and at school

In addition any or all of the following can be offered:

  • Liaison with nursery/school/college/work
  • Opportunities to participate in behaviour and/or communication groups
  • Individual therapy, support and advice for;
    – Anxiety difficulties
    – Communication/interaction difficulties
    – Behavioural difficulties including aggression
    – Sleep
    – Continence/toiletting
    – Relationship issues

We can also recommend other agencies who can offered highly specialised input around sensory issues.

If a diagnosis is not indicated, we will explain in detail our conclusion and plan in partnership with individuals and families what intervention is suitable and evidence-based.

We are all senior clinicians who are very experienced in working with adults, children and young people with a wide range of difficulties, so we can then either offer intervention ourselves, or can refer on to other agencies as appropriate.
